*** To Lamb the credit may be fairly accorded of being the discoverer of the old English dramatists. When the volume of "Specimens" was commissioned by Longman, the Elizabethan and Jacobean dramatists were entirely forgotten, and, as Canon Ainger says, "The revived study of the old English dramatists-other than Shakespeare-dates from this publication.”
